I like to cook with things I have at the house, I grow rosemary, basil, sage, and the hot yoga instructor next door has a huge lemon tree and avocado tree. I grow chili peppers, tomatoes, Vidalia and red onions, garlic, red and russet potatoes, and zucchini and we have two HUGE granny smith apple tree's that literally have thousands of apples on them. I make my own mozzarella and ricotta cheese from whole unpasteurized fresh squeezed milk and rennet from an organic dairy about 30 minutes from my house. I trade my homemade cheese for fresh milk and fresh eggs. I love eating things that I know where they came from, I try not to get to carried away with premade rubs or marinades, when I can make killer marinades with soy sauce Worcestershire, garlic, onion, ginger, lemon, pepper, and EVOO.
